Here were two red flags for the fake check that was sent to me...

1. The endorse here on the back of the check should be dark black or holographic, with no breaks or imperfections.

2. Most authentic cashier's checks have a very light, very large "void" mark on the front of the check made of many small dots. This void is holographic, and when a photocopy of an authentic cashier's check is made, it should appear very dark and clear on the photocopy.

Only foolproof way to identify a fake is to call the issuing bank

That isnt even enough, you call the account holder , track the person or company down and call and ask if the check was issued to you. Banks will tell you to deposit the check and wait and see if it comes back counterfeit or NSF. ONLY the account holder will know if a check was issued by them to you.

http://www.fraudaid.com has information on how to really verify that check.

When I got scammed I called the issuing bank the teller told me that the check was good and would clear my account, WRONG it got me arrested, DO NOT rely on banks.

a few i got had rounting info that was for diff bank then written on face. that was the kicker for me. 43,000$ ha! more wallpaper.
you can go online and check the routing number of the check.. just type it in. or call bank issuing and tell tehm routing number.
account number will match bank, routing number wont...

Individuals do not write cashier's checks, banks do. A bank will be able to tell you if a Cashier's check is good, if the check is drawn off of an individual or company account, you have to call the company.
